Photoacoustic Imaging Scanner for Real-time Anatomical, Functional and Molecular Imaging



Major Functions / Key Features

Main functions

  • Due to high spatiotemporal resolution, penetration depth, sensitivity and specificity, MSOT can be used for a multitude of applications in biological, pharmacological, medical and materials-related research
  • Key applications include: cancer, heart, brain and kinetic studies


  • Single-wavelength optoacoustic imaging at IO Hz frame rate
  • Real-time spectral component visualization at up to 5 Hz frame rate
  • Penetration depth of 2-4 cm, sufficient for whole-body small animal imaging
  • Cross-sectional spatial in-plane resolution: 150 µm
  • High-energy/ fast-tunable laser system ( I 00 mJ / IO ms)
  • Tomographic ultrasound detector array with 64/ 128/ 256/ 5I2 elements
  • Image acquisition fully automated
  • Data post-processing suite for spectral and temporal analysis
